Team Lyman-Morse is pleased to be teaming up again with one of our most successful design partners – C. Raymond Hunt. Our latest collaboration is the Monhegan 42. This new design, our 18th with the venerable firm, will be available in four configurations - Flybridge, Cruiser, Extended Cruiser and Open - and with jet or traditional drives.
Hull 1 will be an able, fast, 42’ Flybridge jet boat. The owners are looking forward to extended cruising up and down the Maine coast and islands in comfort and safety. With attention to being self-sufficient and quiet, this new design will carry the most modern and efficient equipment available.
To fulfill the design requirements all weights must be kept at a minimum without sacrificing strength or comfort. The hull and deck will be built using the SCRIMP infusion method. Vinylester resin will be used throughout with the core being Corecell. But first, as with all LM builds a mockup was created for layout, helm consoles, anchor-handling gear, and interior accommodations.
The Monhegan 42 is also available in an Open, Extended Cruiser and Cruiser profiles and with props.
Please contact Scott F. Layton for further information.
The hull will be a full-deadrise deep-V with integral chine and lift strips. The hull shell will be infused in the existing Hunt P38 female mould. Custom sheer dam, transom insert and jet intake mounting insert pads will be added to give the boat its 42’ feet. Foam coring will be thermoformed where necessary to conform with hull curvature.
A custom deck and flybridge mold will be built.
The steering system is Hamilton Jet-Blue Arrow (two stations), mouse controlled. The general twin Cat Engines (C9 ACERT @ 2500 rpm) installation will be made with a combination of simplicity and the limitation of noise transmission through structure borne sound. The stringer system will be specially built with high-density material for sound absorption and Metalastik type of mounts for further sound reduction.
The owners will enter the living quarters through a custom-designed and built paneled French door. The interior will be built of Mahogany. The interior is to be rich varnished woodwork with the highest standard of cabinetry. All efforts will be to keep the interior light without sacrificing the carpentry.
